Year 3

A Warm Welcome Back from Year 3
Our Y3 Team is:
Miss Wright, Mrs Moore, Miss Rugman, Mrs Evans, Mrs Caddick and Mrs Hill
You have all received the Return to School documents and hopefully these have answered any questions you may have had.  Can we please remind you that all children should wear their PE kit to school on the day that they have PE timetabled.  Year 3 will have PE on Tuesday each week.  We will endeavour to take the children out for activities as much as possible: jogging bottoms and fleeces (plain colours) should be worn if cooler weather is forecast.
Despite the uncertainty surrounding the last few months, the children have returned to school with renewed enthusiasm and excitement.  There will be a huge emphasis on reading and maths this year so it is vital that children continue to read at home and practise times tables.  
As well as English and maths, we will be enjoying learning in other national curriculum subjects.
How Gloucester has changed through the ages will be the focus for History this term.  The children will be looking at the different buildings in the city and how different civilisations have influenced the architecture and layout of the city.  They will be researching the docks and why the Victorians built the canal.  The children will be detectives and study old photos to determine where they were taken.
Have a go with this one!
In Science we will be learning about Forces. We will learn about the affect forces have on objects depending on whether they are being pushed or pulled. We will also be exploring magnets and learning about the north and south poles. The children will be able to understand how a force is measured and explain why two magnets attract or repel.
